Camp Invention, a summer enrichment program offered at schools nationwide, begins Monday, Aug. 19 at Liberty High School!
During Camp Invention’s new program, Supercharged, students in kindergarten through Grade 6 will build confidence, learn to collaborate and transform their wild imaginations into epic creations. Supercharged features hands-on activities to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning; building resourcefulness and problem-solving skills, and encourages entrepreneurship.
Campers will learn creative problem-solving skills while coding and programming futuristic robots, uncovering ancient fossils, designing high-tech superhero gadgets and exploring radio frequencies.
Students in grade 7-9 will take part in the camp’s Leaders-in-Training program, gaining mentoring and collaboration skills while helping guide campers throughout the week.
Liberty Elementary School teacher and MakerSpace facilitator Tamika Terry will lead the program, which meets 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and features hands-on STEM activities teaching campers to question, explore, break through obstacles and even embrace failure.
Each day in this five-day long camp will focus on four modules and their coordinating projects:
Creative Problem Solving
Students team up to rebuild ships and design underwater equipment in Deep Sea Mystery.
In DIY Orbot, participants explore circuit boards, motors and gears as they design a remote-control bot to take on obstacles from sports to dance.
Students collaborate with inventor superheroes and take on the role of engineers, fabricators and innovators to conquer villains in Innovation Force.
Kids become successful entrepreneurs in Farm Tech, as they code bots to turn a polluted wasteland into a money-making machine and create devices to save animals.
